Spring - Goose Verses Eagle Matchup

The eagle spots a young goose on the ground. It positions itself for the kill.

The goose goes on the offensive.

As the goose gets ready for the fight, the eagle is ready for the fight.

The eagle avoids the goose attack and is ready to attack.

Geese can be very aggressive and this young goose is no exception. Fighting for his life!

The brave, viscous eagle gives up for today, but he will be back.
